Testimonials

“My goal was to target a body fat percentage that would allow me to achieve more difficult skills on straps, trapeze and pointe. Taking HIIT classes allowed me to both drop weight and bulk muscle efficiently at the same time. I achieved my goal skill and am now working towards skills I didn't think would ever be possible. I'm super excited about my results and feel like I now have the right foundation to continue building on..”

Ellen Y.Student Acrobat

“I started doing acrobatics when I was 25, and I spent five years learning Handstand, tumbling, trampoline and Chinese pole with Matthew. The depth and width of Matthew's knowledge in acrobatics and gymnastics enables him to improve both beginners and seasoned athletes across many disciplines. He has plenty of experience in teaching skills through logical and efficient progressions. For those who are scared of new skills they can take comfort in the fact that Matthew is an excellent spotter!”

“It was my first trampoline class and first class at circus. I didn’t expect I would be able to do anything because I am not very strong. I learnt so much and felt happy and good about myself. I can’t wait for the next class. I’d recommend anyone to take it no matter what your skills are.”
